Re:Roasted Squash and Polenta Torta with Red Onion Marmalade

I made this for company and it was a hit. It looked elegant and the flavors were very good (I used butternut squash). I did add salt to the polenta (and, contrary to what another reviewer said, the measurements are correct - it's 5 cups broth and 1 quart water) and cooked it until it was smooth and quite thick. I refrigerated the torta for several hours and it was firm when I removed the sides of the springform pan. I baked it on a pizza pan because I didn't have an oven-proof platter. Make sure to cook down the onions until there is no moisture - that may have contributed to soggy tortas.

Re:Pork Souvlaki Salad with Black Pepper Tzatziki

The recipe went together easily and had great flavors. I added some chopped calamata olives because I had them on hand, but it would have been great without them. The tzatziki sauce was a hit - even with my picky 8 year old. Grilled whole wheat pitas were a nice accompaniment. Will make again!

Re:Root Vegetable & Barley Soup with Bacon

I made this soup for dinner the other night and we really enjoyed it. So many good vegetables and the barley and bacon give it a nice heartiness. We had a lot left over,even with seconds. But the leftovers are great - my daughter requested to have some for a snack when she came home from school!
